There are programs like nano which should work fine over ssh and
provide a sort of GUI editing ability (for low values of "GUI").

I have been using the C/C++ module of Eclipse (CDT) for one project,
and a set of terminals, some running vi, for another. I think Eclipse
is more trouble than its worth, but that will depend on what you are
using it for.  The main problem is that as soon as you move away from
the defaults you have to first find out what change to make, and then
find out how to do it in Eclipse.

For extra fun install Vrapper into Eclipse - then you can have vi
editing. [It is optional so you can switch it off for some editing
tasks and on for others.]
